be addendaed. they keep changing their position and changing what they want to do and what, you know, what the requirements are and at no time have they made any decision at the library commission stating that the example that you have is their policy going forward. so basically, as far as the reality goes, they could simply go back tomorrow and change these right back to where they were and very frankly having dealt with mr. herrera for the last two years, and actually having public records withheld from me, had him drag that out for 18 months, finally having to go back to the task force and having them rule it, yes, you did not follow the determination and you still withheld this and we are going to refer to the board of supervisors for action speaks pretty clearly as to his approach to this. he did not like what we had to say. the library commission did not like what we had say. if if they could not shut us up, and i will remind you this was the same library commission where you voted to recommend to the mayor that the president be removed for silenting public comment. well that kind of
romo recommend she change more than just her ears. >> i love thin chins, but i don't want them as pointy as that chin. we talked about that, didn't we? we looked at some pictures of some different people and their chins come off just a little more square. that's exactly what we're going to do, too. >> reporter: and there was more. >> when i looked up inside, the whole septum is actually going off this way. as the septum goes, so goes the no nose. >> she never talked about the nose or the chin before. >> she did not. she did not recognize it. >> reporter: with her ears pinned back her nose and asymmetrical chin would be more pronounced. all three surgeries combined are necessary to balance out nadia's features. any last thoughts as we go into the o.r. here? >> nervous, excited. >> so, in some ways, this has been seven years in the making for nadia. she just went under but she tells me she has been dreaming about this day for some time and now it's all happening for her. so what dr. romo is doing is an oat oplasty, a reduction rine rhinoplasty. what might surprise people is 80% o
of the change would be to allow that site, which houses the architecture department of aau to be considered as conditional use, which is the way it could be under the current zoning. the conditional use was filed in 2012 and actually the planning department started working with a or a you in the legalization of that property. it could be consistent with eastside of 5th street, which is in that western muo district and south of the property between brooks and townsend. the two on townsend street are permitted to conditional uses. the one on 5th street and brannan would not be. alternatively i would suggest a grandfather clause, which was turned down by the commission. thank you. >> thank you, mr. passmore. >> good afternoon, supervisors, tim collin on behalf of the san francisco housing action coalition and i should state without ambiguity, this plan should be moved forward. it should be adopted. there has been a lot of work done ton it and one of san francisco's favorite sports is opposing any kind of planning effort. this should not be one of them. that being said, a couple of parts cau
anything about. when the ethics commission itself, changed our practice, to put the 150-word statements in the body of the document, we did not do it because we thought that we were in any kind of violation up until then. we did it because we thought that it was responsive, because we thought it would reduce frustration and the members of the public would find it evidence of good faith. but not because we thought that it was required. so i think that it is a good thing to see that the library commission is now prepared to raise for its future practice doing the same thing. but i don't see it as required or nor do i see it as abrogating the filing, if there were a filing before now that would not solve that, i don't think that there was such a violation, i think that mr. hartz was right about that. on two other points that were raised and then i will wrap up. the statement that the 150-word statements or summaries as the ordinance provides, are not generated or validated by the city commission, that whose minutes they are part of, does seem to me to be a useful notification to the public
replace resources that are thought to be on the downswing. the whole question of climate change, the environmental affects and fracking, they are all swarming around this leveraging consensus or close to it where instead we have more stuff lying around than we thought. >> if it is close, with the environment lists be happy about fracking, but not having all of it created equal? >> some would be happier than others in the community. someone a more vigorous role from the federal government. they want the interior government to regulate across the country. it probably goes a little bit further. i see the chairman trying to find middle ground on that. middle ground is elusive at the moment. oversight hearings are what the energy committee is doing right now. i definitely think that there is a big factor from the environmental community that wants to get back to renewable energy in general. that is why i think natural gas is important for renewable energy and sustained renewable energy. shining when the sun as the shining, when the wind is not blowing. i think that natural gas plays
though in the united states there were a lot of changes going on in the '40s and '50s after the second world war, in worldwide catholicism these changes really hadn't occurred. and so in order to open up a window for the whole church, not just in modernized countries, this council was called. >> reporter: over the next three years, church leaders at the council produced 16 documents on a host of topics, from introducing local languages into the mass to expanding lay involvement and promoting more interfaith dialogue. one of the documents focused on religious life. it encouraged catholic sisters to reexamine their mission, their rules, even their style of dress. >reporter: many u.s. siers began mofyinor en eliminating the traditional habit. the clothing changes for prioresses of the dominican sisters in amityville, new york, were dramatic. >> she says vatican ii urged people to get out of the city. >> i think that's one of the great gifts of vatican ii, that it sent us back to study what the gospels were saying, and er and over again it was about feed the hungry, visit those in prison,
here, is it that christie has changed or conservatives are the problem? >> well, christie is running for reelection in a very blue state. obamacare i had new jersey by at least 17-- obama carried new jersey. and you have a republican running in a very blue state and doing what he needs to do to get elected. he cannot be rick perry in new jersey. and so i think that's what you're seeing here. now, you know, i'm not with christie on a lot of his issues, gun control and global warming and issues like that, but again, you know, this is similar to what scott brown was doing. >> paul: you've got to do-- >> you've got to do what you've got to do to win. >> paul: owe the snub, cpac snub reflects on his recent in new jersey? >> certainly his recent record. and cpac is a conservative gathering, not an official republican party event. if they want to invite people they think are going to carry a conservative message and are consistent with that, they should. there's no obligation to invite people who are more in the center or more to the left. and i think it's the recent trend where-- >> what w
. -- niece. ice he said, change does not happen fast. one person's actions inspiring another. she simply did what was natural. she was tired so she sat down. that simple act sparked outrage. that outrage spread, and one person's actions inspired change. we will try to remember to encourage change when served justice. today, we will remember with admiration the simple act of a brave woman. we will remember, we will honor, rosa parks. lovely words from a fellow alabama and -- alabaman, all- american icon, willie mays. her bravery, serving justice, and inspiring change, may this statue long be a tribute to her strength and spirit, the legacy and leadership areas may god bless the memory of rosa.

of their influence, changing the world. this whole idea of leadership was challenged. you can even argue if you look at this that after they formalized this, they actually lost a little bit and you can argue about the influence. it got me thinking about the world of elected officials that have this formal authority. >> you haven't done time, have you? >> no, i have not done time. but this idea that we have to wait around for the white horse. i have been waiting around and somewhere expecting it was arnold schwarzenegger. he married maria shriver, that was good, then he got in and president obama had been under that notion to the notion that we had to wait around for someone else to solve our problems. it got me walking down this path. what is happening with these popular movement here in america, occupy movement, the tea party, et etc. there is an energy out there. >> we are talking about estonia, south korea, a lot of people in search of innovation at the head of what we have. they're places throughout the globe that have a learning curve in terms of what you're talking about. >> he's going to come
to move forward. planning code changes such as the one proposed here, to move forward as whatever gets decided as part of that. >> since you split them on the 11th street motion, it sounds like that is unanimous. you made two separate motions, correct? so why don't we take the 11th street motion to remove the grandfathering. can we do it without objection? >> sorry, supervisor. >> yes. >> it's not actually on this motion, but on the previous fee change. i just wanted to throw out for everyone's information, the change in the fee may require an additional notice. and we'll figure that out with the clerk's office and the planning department as soon as we can. i can't determine on the fly right now whether it will be. if it does require additional notice, it would trigger a two-week delay instead of just one week. >> what would trigger a two-week delay? >> when the board is considering new or increased fees. the clerk's office is required to publish a special notice. and so i can't say and it sounds like -- >> is this in regards to chair wiener's? >> yes. >> [kha*-eur/] chair w
for the bailout, and i'm sure you do as well. have you been able to change anybody's mind who perhaps opposed the bailout and then upon seeing the results felt that in retrospect it was a good idea? >> guest: we became known as government motors to a lot of people. no question that hurt gm and continues to target today. but we did pay back the loan to the government, and we have payback a lot of the equity investment the government made. and yes, i think people want gm to succeed. the government motors label is still there to some extent, still affects some people but i think it is less now. and i think once the indebtedness is totally pay, i think that will go away. >> in the book you talk about what you found when you arrive at general motors. a lot of it was not necessarily apparent to the public. the financial results were, but what you then we started looking underneath the hood so to speak is revealed very much in the first time in the book. chair with a a little bit about some of the surprises for you as a seasoned executive when you arrived in detroit. >> guest: well, i expected certa
the narrative. we need to do challenge the narrative to make changes to dive frank to prevent the further acquisition from the power of god frank. he is willing to asked why the fdic is the entity in charge of the authority. lie in which it has no experience to regulate insurance or hedge funds can suddenly become a regulator. it is a hard question. one of those could be a force booker good if used properly citibank had problems. [laughter] could use the liquidation authority to wind down citibank and send a message to the market's, there will be consequences for failure and would that change the consequences? you cannot define what is systemic and to all circumstances ocher. but timothy geithner response is what regulators do whatever they want and we will figure it out, i trust us. what would peter do during the crisis? and what is appropriate? i look forward to discussion of these issues and congratulate you on your block. [applause] >> thank you very much. is an honor to be here and comment on peter's book in the '60s willis friedman and and the shorts set out to do difficult things a
of time for congress to talk about this. >> programs where you have changed money from one account to another. you cannot do that under this type of thing that we are talking about. >> some flexibility to rearrange funding programs. training and maintenance and so forth. reporter: remember that date for the federal for lysistrata? by midnight the next day, congress must pass a $900 billion spending bill to fund government operations wee a government shutdown takes place with worse consequences than the $850 billion aggressor. it has been scheduled this way since january. lawmakers knew that they could use the bill funding government operations to adjust where the cuts get made. if it doesn't get fixed, republicans now say that there is only one place to look. >> of the president chooses not to use that and goes after high-profile spending cuts, and that is a choice that what he will have made for political reasons four the president, for the fourth year in a row has not produced a budget proposal on time. it is not expected before the end of march. the next three months will see li
chang. she is the vice chair, correct. >> this meeting will come to order, welcome my name is cohen and to my right is chang to the right is supervisor campos. and the crowd goes wild. thank you, thank you very much. >> madam clerk, i want to thank sfgtv and thank you for making us look beautiful and sounding smart. please silence all cell phones and complete any speaker cards to be included as part of the file should be submitted to the committee clerk and each member will be allotted the same number of minutes to speak. the items will appear on the march 12, 2013 board meeting agenda unless otherwise stated. >> excellent. i'm so excited. okay, could you please call item one. >> item number one is a hearing controller office park maintenance report for fiscal year 2011 and 2012. and parks throughout the city. >> are there any opening remarks? seeing none let's begin. >> i am sorry, there is one, excuse me. >> good morning, everyone, so i just wanted to introduce hearing item that was previously introduced under supervisor chu it is a annual fee that was passed by voters in 2003. we
forward at that time with the staff's recommendation to implement this change in the feeder patterns between isa and everett. that was recommended to take affect for next school year, 13-14. the board of education asked the staff to sort of hold off on that direction. and take the time that was necessary to analyze factors like demographic projection, academic performance, a number of different things. and to come back and make a recommendation at a later date that was informed by more due diligence. so that's the history as far as what has happened with the board of education. one last point before i turn it over to dr. stevens to talk about work ongoing and looking at the options. is that we have seen present, not to say this will continue to be the case in the future. but at present the issues about capacity are being addressed adequately given the current demand for both daniel webster elementary school, bryant elementary school and isa. considering there is a large attendance area for daniel webster. it's the largest in the district. even so there is still enough space for the t
of uninsured people in the bay area were given access to life-changing medical care today. we're not talking about checkups now. doctors and staff at kaiser medical center volunteered their skills to provide same-day surgeries for about 30 people. among the surgeries performed, cataract removal, hernia repairs. they started the program back in 1993. >> here we are 20 years later, 10,000 patients, 1,200 volunteers, and about $80 million of donated services. it's ooh a remark accomplishment without the entire health care system pitching in. >> if you want more information on the program, program called operation is set for april. >>> in the bayous of louisiana and texas researchers have discovered a potential medical break through in alligators. >> reporter: these keepers of the bayou are known for their tenacity. but behind the alligators' piercing eyes and sharp teeth is an immune system that's as ferocious as the serene creature. >> they put a lot of pressure on themselves to develop this immune system we even been studying for the last 12 years. >> reporter: he handles them like his own ch
are interrelated and influence in the book, use influence as the ability to change the perception of the situation in order to moderate people in terms of moving in a certain direction or stopping doing something and power and just creating incentives both sticks and carrots in order to get people to behave in a certain way. >> host: how exactly is it declining, because i think if you asked a lot of people today they would say okay maybe there are new ceos at the top of our organizations that they are still making enormous paychecks and yields a lot of power and we see more and more countries that seem to be emerging as strong players on the global stage. so how is that not just a shift and a redistribution of power? how is what you are saying actually declined? >> guest: each one of the players you mentioned, well paid ceos and heads of states and new countries that are displaying the geopolitics of renowned and have a large say, all of these have power but they have less power than before and they can do less than their successors could do. pick any one of those and you will see they are more co
the climate change issues. the leader has made it clear this is going to be a priority. coming out of the gate i think we are going to look at three big areas. first is natural gas because this ripples everywhere in the economy. this is keeping prices down in order to make sure we have a manufacturing renaissance in our country. there are substantial environmental questions. be a point have to deal with franking -- we are going to have to deal with fracking. we are looking for a sweet spot where we can have some export but not so much that it would hurt consumers and business. we are clinton deal with nuclear waste and encourage the discussions we have had in the senate. this is an issue that seems to be a longer running battle than the trojan war. we are clinton be looking at the whole question of subsidies, particularly in the time when funds are so scarce. there are some pretty troubling questions involving coal royalties. you are supposed to pay a royalty when extracting coal from federal lands. some of the companies that want to ship to asia -- there is a lower price than you would have i
you just don't know how convincing, or how powerful the holy spirit can be in changing a person's heart. i think that's one of the best, or easiest selling points for the 40 days for life campaign, is there are so many of us that, you know, have had a change of heart, or maybe a change of heart to just investigate further. what is going on? when we hear 55 million babies have died since roe versus wade, there's a lot of people wanting to know, am i a part of this? and i think that complacency and not hearing the words immortal sin or that you're actually killing a life, people years ago would have said my daughter's having a baby, we'll figure out how it works, is different now. we stand in the gap when a grandmother-to-be who thinks she's too young hears her daughter is having a baby, that instead of being overwhelmed she sees there's people standing in the wingsides, pregnancy centers, adoption agencies, there's a lot of people. that's who we hope to be standing by when we say there's other information, other choices. we found out that won'
to be demonstrated by the owner. an additional cost up to $6 million for construction changes will be paid for through the reserves the sfmta and i understand that the sfmta is seeking reimbursement from the federal transit administration. what we have in front of us is the sud legislation, to describe this briefly and then i will ask kevin guy from the planning department to go through the specific provisions. the owner of the pagota theater has had existing entitlements which would allow him to construct a mixed-use building on the site, essentially a ground floor restaurant, condos on top of that, and parking spaces below it. the lease agreement assumes that the owner retains his existing entitlement rights after the two years that the mta will spend on this site. specifically the sud will change the planning code to allow the pagota theater's owner proposed development project to move forward after the dem litigation of the building and after the sfmta uses the site for extraction. before this proposed extraction relocation, the pogata theater owner had a fully entitled site. the fact
agreement for various aau properties. which i think could change specific zoning. so i guess following up to the question that supervisor kim just asked, if we don't grandfather them in, so they then have this school non-residential school site, and their cu, the cu application would be invalidated, because it would no longer be permitted. if as part of the settlement negotiations with the planning department, there were an agreement that they could operate a school there, presumably, the zoning could then change at that point. and i asked that question only because, again, in my view it's important for aau to deal globally with the planning department on these issues. and i can't -- maybe this is a question for the city attorney. as part of that settlement negotiations, and whatever results from it, could this be rezoned, even post-adoption to the western soma plan to allow them do this as part of the negotiations? >> john givner, deputy city attorney. i am not familiar with the negotiation details. i would defer to the department. >> sure, and i'm also not privy to the details of th
on hayes, church street and market street. we have reviewed our proposed changes with jim nicko, toby levy and planning staff corey teague and none of them have any objections to what we're proposing. so we hope you include them as an amendment to the plan. lastly, i would like to introduce dennis flaherty, the owner of 520 townsend. >> thank you. we are introducing -- we're going modify the restriction on the lot merger today. >> terrific. thank you very much. >> i'm dennis flaherty and i have owned the property for over 35 years. i occupied it many years running my own business and my son presently has an office there. in getting your amendment, we realize that we have talked to a neighbor who has a 50' parcel. ours is 138. we would like to merge those, and provide a -- the ability to introduce an office building that would probably project to high-tech usage. inasmuch as we would be limited in what we're planning. we're asking this change, which i feel would benefit the neighborhood, because we would be giving up a substantial amount to provide the thoroughfare through to harrie
you are helping to attack climate change. he made it clear this is going to be a priority for him. coming out of the gate we're going to look at three big air combraps first, natural gas because that ripples everywhere in the economy. this is part, for example of keeping prices down in order to make sure we have a manufacturing renaissance in our country. there's substantial questions, we have to deal with fractioning and methane gas emissions. this is going to be an important trade issue. i and others are looking for where we can have some exports but not so much we would hurt consumers and business. then we're going to deal with nuclear wastes. i'm very encouraged about the discussions we've had the bipartisan discussions that we've had in the senate. this is an issue that seems to be a longer running battle than the trojan war. we're also going to look at the question of subsidies and in particularly at a time when funds are so scarce. we've been looking at troubling questions involving coal royalties. right now when you treakts coal from land you're supposed to pay a royalty.
free at the store. it's changed from there. you changed the equation. free from the store was the original idea. >> most loyalty programs break down into one of two different forms. buy 10, get one free. or earn a point for every dollar spent and redeem that. >> i can measure that. >> the buy ten get one free programs, which have been around for eons are fundamentally flawed because they give them free things when they were unlikely to pay for them anyway. stores that experimented or used those programs are looking for ways to get more engaged, involved, social. gamification is the method that's become popular. >> instead of getting an actual free thing, i'm getting a badge. >> virtual items can be really meaningful to people when they are significant. recognition is what so many people are after. in gamification revolution, we looked at all these companies big and small that used gamification to transform their business. it ends up being about three ideas, status, access, power. the more you give somebody, the more loyal they are. >> some companies doing that, gamifying t
of california to discuss his career in hollywood, marriage equality, climate change, immigration reform, gun rights, and violent movies,, as well as why he chose not to run for governor against arnold schwarzenegger in 2006. this is an hour and 10 minutes. >> good afternoon and welcome to today's meeting of the commonwealth club of california. the place where you are in the know. you can find us on the internet at commonwealthclub.org. im a news anchor for abc 77 television in san francisco and a member of the commonwealth club board of directors and your moderator for today's program. it is now my letter to introduce our distinguished speaker today, rob reiner. [applause] >> thank you. >> from his starring role as meathead on the popular 1970 -- >> you are the first person to call me that today. [laughter] >> it is still early. >> true. >> on that wonderful program "on the family" to his blockbuster films. when you look at at his list of films, it is remarkable. "the princess bride," "when harry met sally," "a few good men." as a director, he has worked with a-list actors, jack nicholson, t
just like to close out. expressing my appreciation for the change in park rating score for the district ten neighborhood and also leave a statement of encouragement to continue moving that trend, moving the needle up. when i look at ten, nine, ten and eleven. these three districts have a lot of similarities not just in ethnic make-up and the economic make-up of the neighborhood, but, in park scores there are many things that we have in common, and rest rooms, cleanliness and supervisor campos and i are talking about a difference of 0.5, 0.5 percent. and so, it is so i guess that my point is that as you continue to focus on nine, you can see and continue to share love, not against anything against. >> we are going to be focusing on districts nine and ten and eleven. >> and four. >> and in case anybody else is listening, we are going to definitely focus on 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 11. >> you left 8 out. >> and 8. >> not the king of the parks themselves. >> but in all seriousness, particularly as we know the three of us rally around mcclarin park and the second largest park and that is import
of compromises that some compromises are stepping stones toward greater change. some compromises are part of what progressives need to do to understand the difference between a sellout and a stepping stone when you're compromising. when we were debating the health care bill a couple of years ago in 2010 there was a lot of debate about what moves us forward in what is a sellout. and is really important for us to make that distinction. some politicians are always, always making compromises, but sometimes they're making compromises as allies on behalf of social movements. so the politicians include hiram johnson, the great governor of california who is is possible for the first minimum-wage law, a workmen's compensation law, the first major regulations on the railroad industry, corporations. his counterpart in the 1930's, radical governor of minnesota. marcantonio, the great congressman from new york who is a protege of someone also in my book, the mayor of new york. and the great paul melson who died more than ten years ago in a tragic airplane crash was a great hero and the principal politician. t
of police, gregory suhr to come up and speak. >> if i could ask everyone more time, i think we short changed chanel silas on that national anthem. [applause] she actually stood in sergeant jerry darcy who laid world series fame and lore was going to sing, and has the same cold that everyone has, and channel showed up. i want to thank the families and friends that are here, and dignitaries. and the board of supervisors who are represented. supervisor campos and weiner, great friends of the department. and commissioner loftus, needs no introduction. and willie brown, tremendous friend of the police department. i don't know if we have been blessed to have a mayor more supportive in our hiring plan, than mayor lee. i appreciate everyone working together to support us here in san francisco. now to the matter at hand. we are privileged to be here of the 56 sworn officers that are sworn to the rank of sergeant, captain and deputy of chief. in all endeavors leadership is critical to success. as we move into the first half of 2013, solid and sound leadership as commissioner loftus spoke us is critica
to this and we cannot deny the contours' of the change already taking place in your world, the media, a block the newspapers, it is obvious now in hindsight but the music industry and tell monetized saying you're not buying albums in the more we have a wonderful debate about my digitation and flipping feta classroom to expand the classroom. >> host: forgive me, as the governor on the board, in terms of treating citizenship with young people the responsibility of the institutions and colleges? >> guest: i have a three and a half year-old daughter, you all had this experience, she pulled out my phone and i am mesmerized she discovers things i did not know existed. i feel she is a prodigy. >> host: when she and estonia? [laughter] >> guest: then one year ago they start early with pre-preschool in every single one maybe there were not prodigy's but wired differently. the evolution the you cannot educate my daughter like i was educated. the generation of choice you cannot have a row of desks and a bell ringing during ben franklin's time with single subjects in teachers and a mass education environ
change and not just how we refer to the professioncy levels but that is a body of work that is embedded through ut the day throughout all of the con content areas and there is a great deal of work that needs to be part of the our road map moving forward. >> so could we find another place or way to have more detail on this? or maybe the opportunity to actually have a discussion about this? >> i would think that say curriculum committee item. >> so to say that we have already slated moving toward the common core implementation with the focus on the humanities at the may 6th committee. i don't expect a lot of answers but a road map in the direction that the district is pursuing will be discussed. >> i think that commissioners you will be getting more information and we are planning to be at the next board of education meeting to give you an update on the allow plan and so as you begin to see all of these different pieces and these different plans, coming together, you will see how this is related to the work as a whole and how we made it cohesive and coherent between the different times of
recommendations or a law change or guidance on how to be more effective or consistent about doing this. there are many things that won't be amenable to our suggestions, but i think that if we could just follow those through, we may find things where we can improve the underlying situation as we go through the specific cases. does that seem like it would be worth while? >> sure. >> i see the staff nodding so i am satisfied. >> okay. do any commissioners need a break? >> no? >> i think that we should go through the other individuals on that, while it is fresh in our minds. >> next, item on the agenda is... under 4 a, this is a under chapter two of our new regulations which provide the burden on the respondent. so i understand that miss ballard and mr. buel and miss gong are here? miss gong is not here? >> who is going to speak? >> okay, mr. buell, please? >> five minutes. >> mr. gooding is satisfied. >> i will use much less, thank you very much. >> let me say, first, that i think that you have a communication from the city attorney which pleads my innocence in this case. but i want to pu
me and started planting flowers here or there around the block. and that changed everything mysteriously. and we figured out over time what it was that really created the change, and it wasn't the garden. it wasn't the plants. it was that annette was unafraid to cross the street and give a hug to someone she didn't know, who was radically different from her, and she started to build a personal relationships that have become cusada gardens and now a network of people and places and projects that are really shaping the culture and life in bayview hunters point. it was -- it's been the distinct pleasure of my life, frankly, to careful where you move, it can change everything. but if you're going to move to a new place, annette young smith is the neighbor that you would pray to have. and i can tell you that she has been a terrific friend and mentor, too. she is still the chair of the board of the cusada gardens. we know it's quesada.
